Appeal after man viciously attacked in city centre

Greater Manchester Police (GMP) is appealing for information after a man was attacked by a group of men outside a bar in Manchester city centre.

On Sunday 14 February 2016, at around 3.45am, a 24-year-old man was outside Charlies Bar on Harter Street in the city centre, when he was approached by a group of men who began punching and kicking him in the head and body, until he lost consciousness.

Following the attack, the victim was taken to hospital where he was found to have a small bleed on the brain. He has now been discharged from hospital to continue his recovery at home.

One of the attackers is described as a mixed race man of stocky build, approximately 6ft 3in tall, around 24-years-old and wearing a brightly coloured top.

Commenting on the incident, Detective Constable Kelly-Anne Featherstone of GMP’s Manchester City Centre Neighbourhood Policing Team said: “This was quite a vicious group assault on a man who had been enjoying a night out with his friends.

“The city centre bar scene is very busy on a weekend and we believe that there may have been a number of witnesses who can assist with our investigation.

“If you think you may have seen this incident then please contact police”.
